The Glass School in Valašské Meziříčí is one of the traditional educational institutions in the region and it has been operating for more than 75 years. It was founded during World War II as a factory training center and has undergone many changes since then. After the Velvet Revolution in 1989, it became the only secondary glass school in Moravia, which has also had its own glassworks since 2001. Gradually, the school was transformed into a secondary school of arts and crafts and currently offers education in the fields of glass design, interior design and glass in architecture, industrial design, applied painting and glass craft.
